How are vice presidential candidates chosen?

The party tries to choose someone who will complement the presidential candidate and help them win the election. This might be someone who can carry a big state that the candidate is weak in. It might be someone who is popular in an area or with a group of people who do not strongly favor the presidential candidate. It might a person who has solid experience and might be attractive to independent voters. Good debating and campaigning skills are very valuable. There also may be political considerations within the party that need to be considered. If the nomination is hard-fought , it may be wise to offer the losing candidate the number two slot in order to ensure the strong support of his supporters in the upcoming campaign. Lately, the party conventions have often let the presidential candidate name his running mate and personal likes and dislikes have seemingly become a major factor in making the choice on some occasions.

What are the processes followed at the national nominating convention?

Delegates from all the states and US territories meet at the national convention. Nominations for president are the first order of business. Speeches are made to put names in nomination. Some of the delegates are already committed to one candidate by a primary election or caucus. Some are uncommitted or else or committed to a favorite son who is not a serious candidate. Deals are made and balloting begins by roll call vote of the states in alphabetical order. After each vote is announced, there is often a demonstration in favor of their candidate, If one candidates gets a majority, everybody changes their vote to make it unanimous. If not, more deals are made and another ballot taken. After a presidential candidate is nominated, he makes an acceptance speech. Next a vice-presidential candidate is chosen by balloting and finally a platform is approved.
